|Gavril is the shortened version of Gaurilaitis (to the best of my knowledge) as it was spelled in Lithuania. My grandfather shortened it when he was granted citizenship in 1920. My grandmother's maiden name was Eicike (also Lithuanian). She re-married, after divorce, to Pete Savaiano about 1949.On my mother's side - My grandfather's surname was Deninis, which was eventually shortened to Denis. My grandmother's maiden name was Mikaitis. Both were also Lithuanian.|
My father was Joseph Gavril, and my mother's maiden name was Sophie Denis.
All of the above lived on the south side of Chicago, Illinois. If you have any knowledge of this family, or have any information to share, please contact me at the address listed.
Thank You, in advance.
